At Black Bear Crossings, we proudly display the paintings of Behon LaPrairie, a local Native American artist, on the walls in the café. However, we don’t just want you to be able to admire the work of local native artists, we also want you to be able to take some of it with you. We stock a display case full of local native art available for purchase. Not only are these pieces original and locally made, but they also make beautiful gifts for yourself or a loved one. With a variety of jewelry, moccasins, birch bark crafts, and wild rice, you are sure to find something to fulfill the holiday wishes of somebody on your list!
